This is a really bad made caliper! – Digital 150mm Caliper Reviews

posted by Jan09 on 09/08/2013

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

It is half the price of buying one locally. Looks good on the outside. It is quite accurate.
The important sliding surfaces are the only ones that are not smooth and nice. It takes a lot of force to move the slider, so small adjustments are impossible.
I disassembled it and tried to get it working. I found rough edges inside the sliding surfaces. Then I tried lubricating it but this only resulted in setting free all the grinding dust inside of it.
The caliper looks fine but is totally worthless. The sliding surfaces are way to roughly cut to be functional.
